Renewal Time: Arizona’s Transaction Privilege Tax License

If your business is licensed through The Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR,) you’ll need to renew your Arizona Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT) License by January 1, 2020. Reminder letters will be showing up in your mailbox very soon. This is something Focus HR, Inc. clients handle on their own, independent of payroll.

Arizona’s TPT covers the collection and remittance of state, county and city taxes.

Before renewing, you’ll want to update and verify your account information to prevent unnecessary fees and penalties. You can do that through the online services portal, but you’ll need an e-signature PIN.

Here’s a list of changes you can make through

  • Change the mailing address for corporate, withholding and transaction privilege and use tax licenses
  • Add, edit and/or close locations for TPT licenses
  • Cancel or close an existing TPT license or single location on a TPT license
  • Close an account for withholding or TPT licenses
  • Make changes to “Doing Business As” (DBA) name or the business mailing address
  • Add a new reporting jurisdiction, new business code, or business or rental location

If a business or a location is closed, the corresponding license must be cancelled if you want to avoid the renewal process, applicable fees and penalties.

For out-of-state businesses that don’t have a physical presence in Arizona, the TPT is also in effect (beginning October 1, 2020.) Those businesses must renew their TPT license(s) if they meet the following thresholds regarding sales to Arizona customers (in the current or prior calendar year.) 

For an easier renewal process with quicker processing, ADOR strongly recommends filing and paying for your TPT online, but businesses with multiple locations are required to renew electronically.
